Yubu Island

At a glance

Yubu Island was formed by an accumulation of sand and sediment runoff from the Yonaragawa River on Iriomote Island. Originally an uninhabited island, people began to live here back when seasonal farmers from nearby islands set up temporary dwellings here for rice paddy cultivation on Iriomote.
The waterway between Yubu Island and Iriomote Island is very shallow, being just one meter deep even during high tide. One of the favorite pastimes of visitors is to cross over to Yubu Island on a cart pulled by a water buffalo while listening to the driver play sanshin. Sometimes you can also see people wade across on the shoal on their own.
The island has a pond where the water buffalo take a break to drink between shifts. Occasionally you can even see young calves at the watering hole. Yubu Island is an arboretum its whole Island and threre is butterfly park, large store and restaurant, forming one integrated tourism facility. Another favorite pastime is taking a walk while enjoying the flowers along the road.
The island can be circuited in just about an hour on foot and the water buffalo drawn carts depart every 30 minutes, so you can enjoy the island at your own pace. However, if you have come over for a day trip from another island other than Iriomote Island, make sure to check the time of the last ferry.
